DEN F Jordan Hamilton (#1) is putting on a show! I like his aggressiveness and he has pretty good size. Do you think he'll be able to crack Karl's rotation next season if he continues his strong play?
You can get passed up quickly in this league, though; the San Antonio Spurs can testify to that. They, too, once set the standard that every team in the league strove to follow, yet they’re five seasons removed from their last championship. While they have remained competitive and amongst the league’s best, they undoubtedly think about what they could have done differently to add another championship rather than being stuck at four.
It’s hard to envision a scenario in which the Thunder finish any worse than second in the Western Conference after the regular season next year. Many experts are still picking them to remain at the top. But, based on the fact that they finished last season on a four-game losing streak and were fairly inactive this offseason, thoughts that they can finish next season with the franchise’s first championship since 1979 may be fueled off more hope than reality.
Initially Brown was caught off guard by the amount of attention that came with being at the helm of the Lakers. He knew it was a high-profile position, but he was not prepared for the actuality of it.
Whatever problems Brown does run into next season, coaches from around the league would gladly take them on to be in his position. He has a great opportunity to prove his worth as a coach and put himself amongst the elite by winning a championship, the only thing his resume is really missing right now.
Owner James Dolan, general manager Glen Grunwald and coach Mike Woodson have remained completely silent on the subject of Jeremy Lin since the Knicks refused to match his offer from the Houston Rockets.
“I really like our team this season,” said Roeser. “I don’t see any limit to what we can accomplish as a team. I think the additions with Lamar Odom, Jamal Crawford and Grant Hill help us at all the positions. I think we come back with a great mix of veterans, young players, experience and savvy and a lot of depth at every position. I can’t wait to see us play.”
